Three French Hensby Margie Palatini, Richard Egielski (Illustrator)
On the third day of Christmas, a mademoiselle from Paris sent her true love three French hens, two turtle doves, and a partridge in a pear tree.The hens never arrived . . . . Colette, Poulette, and Fifi end up delivered not to Philippe Renard, but to Phil Fox from the Bronx. Phil can't believe his luck-he hasn't had a square meal in weeks, and here's a free lunch right on his doorstep! But his plans to dine on the delectable fowl are foiled as the French hens work their Christmas magic on him, proving that the spirit of the holidays can bring the most unlikely folks together.

It's a fun read with the foreign accent and the play on the Twelve Days of Christmas.
What a clever story---my kind of humor! The hens attire adds to the fun! You'll never sing the twelve days of Christmas quite the same again!!
